YANKTON, S.D. (AP) — Mount Marty College has opened a new nursing center and simulation lab to provide hands-on training in a range of health care situations from basic health assessments to advanced life support.
The Yankton college's new Avera Nursing and Simulation Center held an open house this month to celebrate the facility's opening, the Yankton Daily Press & Dakotan reported.
"Our nursing program is something we're very proud of, but it's true that our facilities and technology haven't always kept up with the quality of education," said college President Marc Long. "That changes today."
The simulation rooms are set up to resemble an average hospital or clinic room, as well as a space similar to assisted-living quarters. Each room contains human-like dummies.
